Welcome to today’s debate on patriotism when it comes to unconditionally supporting a president at a time of war. Today’s debaters are MSNBC host Ed Schultz and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Ms. Clinton won the coin toss and has elected to defer to Mr. Schultz. Take it away, Ed:

Republicans are attacking the Commander-in-Chief during a time of war! … There should be no debate: we should be kicking [Gaddafi’s] ass … Whose side are you on, Sarah: are you with the terrorists, Sarah, or are you with the President of the United States? … And I have to ask the question tonight: where is the patriotism from all of these war-hawks? Where’s the patriotism of the Republican party? … What about being a patriot?

Thank you, Mr. Schultz.

Secretary Clinton — you have 16 seconds for rebuttal:

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

That wraps up today’s debate, thanks so much for watching. Be sure to tune in next week to see Claire McCaskill and Joe Biden hammer it out over the question, “Is paying more in taxes patriotic?”
